(KTVI) – Asiana Airlines, the company whose plane crashed earlier this month in San Francisco, is now suing a San Francisco television station for damaging its reputation that crash killed three Chinese teenagers.
Asiana says KTVU damaged the airline’s reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots on that flight.
The bogus names phonetically spelled out phrases like “something wrong” and “we too low”.
The television station has apologized.
The NTSB has also apologized, saying a summer intern erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew.
